Rochester/Sweden, N.Y. (WHAM) - The man who was drunk when he crashed into two cars near the Brockport Walmart last April and killed an elderly woman was sentenced Wednesday.

William Kleisle, 32, was sentenced to 5-15 years in state prison for aggravated vehicular homicide and one year for third-degree assault. The one year for the assault conviction will be served concurrently with the aggravated vehicular homicide charge.

Kleisle pleaded guilty to both counts.

On April 24, Kleisle was speeding down Rt. 31, passing other vehicles on the median and shoulder of the road. He then drove through a red traffic light and slammed into the passenger's side of a car driven by 59-year-old Charlene Fuller. Fuller was making a left turn into the parking lot of the Brockport Walmart at the time.

Fuller's vehicle spun around and crashed into a third vehicle, driven by 61-year-old Deborah Bueford of Penfield.

Fuller's mother, 84-year-old Mary Beh, was killed in the crash.

Kleisle will also be required to be pay more than $2,600 in court fees, surcharges and restitution.
